History

2016 Season

G2 Esports rebranded from the name Gamers2 in October 2015, after qualifying for the EU LCS. In addition to rebranding, the team changed several positions in their roster: from Smittyj, Kikis, PerkZ, Jesse, and Hybrid as their qualifying roster, G2 Esports moved Kikis to top lane and add Korean players Trick and Emperor. Their roster quickly rose to prominence and recognition in the LCS, consistently tied for first place after each week, sometimes with H2k and sometimes also with Vitality, until the end of the split when they held first place with sole possession. With a quarterfinal bye, the playoffs also saw them strong, as they defeated both Fnatic and Origen 3-1 to win the season and secure an invitation to the Mid-Season Invitational.

Going into MSI, G2 Esports were seen as a favorite not to win, but to come in second place to the Korean representatives SK Telecom T1.[1][2] However, the team lost their first four games of the round robin and ultimately finished in fifth place, ahead of only SuperMassive eSports, and out of playoff contention - importantly, this placement meant that Europe would miss out on a Pool 1 Seed at Worlds. In a statement published partway through the second day of play, G2 stated that their players had taken vacation time after a "rigorous Spring Split."[3] Emperor later stated that there had been an internal conflict within the team one day prior to the start of the event.[4]

These several factors - their performance compared to expectations, the far-reaching impact of their result harming the European region as a whole for Worlds seeding, and their statement seeming like a poor excuse - resulted in the organization receiving significant backlash from the community and sparked a debate with varied opinions on the matter from different people.[5][6][7][8]
